Tofino house description

Our cottage in the Resort Municipality of Tofino is nestled in a quiet residential area, only minutes walk to the town centre and all its amenities, and only minutes from the pristine beaches at Tonquin Park and Bay.

Our home has been constructed to the highest environmental standards, utilizing timber from sustainably managed forests, insulated using the highest R value available. The solid wood flooring is BC grown, harvested and processed, it is a mix of Fir and Larch from Wynndel near Creston. To conserve water our bathrooms are fitted with efficient dual-flush low-flow toilets and 'on demand' hot water system.

Our home is nestled amongst a forest of veteran red cedar trees, the understory a rich mosaic of species (including Pacific yew) true to our beliefs we have sought innovative ways to co-exist with nature and minimize our ecological footprint on this pristine landscape.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We bought the lot in 2003 and started building our cottage in 2008. We are both professional foresters, self confessed tree huggers and we love the westcoast for the pristine wilderness, temperate rainforest and miles of sandy beaches.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tofino:
                  We hope you enjoy your experience at our home away from home.... Please take nothing but memories Leave nothing but footprints Kill nothing but time.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Resort municipality of Tofino built a new trail less than 100 yards from the front door which takes you to Tonquin Bay and along a scenic cliff top walk with beautiful vista's and stunning sunsets, eventually this coastal trail will take you all the way to Mackenzie beach.
